I'm a huge fan of diversity in YA. OPEN MIC is a collection that addresses the sometimes sensitive topic of race in ways that reflect the diversity of the authors.

Most are written in such a way that bring light-heartiness without tearing down a culture. More than a few of these stories had me giggling and also relating with the characters.

Open Mic: Riffs on Life Between Cultures in Ten Voices

Love how Mitali Perkins states that shared laughter fosters community and gets us talking about subjects that usually could cause division or discomfort. One of my favorites is by Mitali Perkins about getting 'points' on the boy scale from her older sisters and feeling that no boy will be interested in her other than being the exotic 'friend'. Neri shows in free verse the reactions of some on a German subway to an interracial family. The father here is great with how he handles apparent racism with a smile. Love this But here, they never had immigrants Also it shows that humor is universal and can break down barriers.
